BALANCE RnD (Research & Development) provide access to cost effective solutions through cutting edge technologies and proven methodologies in the area of catchment hydrology, hydrodynamics and flow hydraulics including overland flow and underground systems, mainly for establishing flood models.

This includes having the only privately run Hydraulics Laboratory in Australia. As such we are the one and only totally independent laboratory as the only others are either government Run such as Manly Hydraulics Lab or Government funded such as the numerous University Labs.

We pride our selves at staying at the forefront of, and contributing to, research and technological breakthroughs, such as being the first Consultancy to use the extremely powerful & robust 2D-Hydrodynamic model ANUGA.

This model was developed by GeoScience Australia (GA) and the Australian National University (ANU) and is the first known government funded software project to be released as Free & Open Source Software (FOSS). We are also active developers of the ANUGA model through this FOSS avenue, having been pivotal in adding the rainfall module and bridge/culvert module in order to allow uran flood analysis.


  1. Robert French says:

    Doesn’t Hydrological Services at Warwick Farm/ Liverpool have a hydraulic laboratory and isn’t it a private company?

  2. from their website http://www.hydroserv.com.au/index.htm
    it seems they have a flume that is used as a “Current meter calibration tank, 65 metres long”… Not sure how much physical hydraulic modelling Hydrological Services does ?

  3. I think this is one of the most important info for me.
    And i am glad reading your article. But want to remark on some general things, The site style is great, the articles is really excellent :
    D. Good job, cheers

  4. This post will help the internet viewers for building up new website or even a weblog
    from start to end.
